Cupcake Decorating Kit
Follow the cupcake mix instructions indicated on the box. Set the bowl of batter aside. Preheat the oven based on box instructions.
Divide the batter into 3-5 mixing bowls, one bowl for each desired color. Add 2-3 drops of desired food coloring gel into each mixing bowl. Whisk to combine. Add additional drops of food coloring gel as desired.
Once you have achieved the perfect color, let the batter rest for 5-10 minutes. During this time, the color will further develop and deepen.
Fill the cupcake pan with colored batter and bake according to mix instructions.
Once the cupcakes are baked, remove them from the oven and let them rest until they are cool to the touch. If they do not cool, they will melt your frosting when decorating.
Divide the can of frosting into 3-5 mixing bowls, one bowl for each desired color. Add 2-3 drops of one color of food coloring gel into each mixing bowl. Whisk to color the frosting. Add additional drops of food coloring gel until your desired depth of color is reached.
Frost your cupcakes as desired using a knife or piping bag & tip.
Top your cupcakes with sprinkles, Icing Stickers, and sparkly finishing touches. Use a clean craft brush or Dusting Pump to delicately apply Edible Glitter.
Color your cupcakes by adding 2-3 drops of food coloring gel to the batter before baking.
